The table shows the data stored in the motion detector Input (time in sec) Output (height in ft) 0 10 0.1 9.8 0.2 9.4 0.3 8.6 0.4 7.4 We can write a relation as a set of ordered pairs and then graph them. The x – coordinates (or inputs) are called the Domain . And the y – coordinates (or outputs) are called the Range Example 1: Graph the relation and determine its Domain and Range {(0, 4), (–2, 3), (–1, 3), (–2, 2), (1, –3)}

Another way to show a relation is a mapping diagram. Function Example 2: Make a mapping diagram for each relation and then determine if the relation is a function a. {(–2, –1), (–2, 3), (0, 3), (5, 4)}

Unformatted text preview: b. {(–1, 5), (0, 3), (2, 3), (3, –1)} A fourth way to represent a relation is with a two dimensional curve or line. Graphing a relation gives us an easy way to tell if it is a function. We will use the vertical-line test to determine if each of the following graphs represents a function. Example 3 In algebra, we frequently use function notation to describe function rules. Example 4: 5 ) ( + = x x f Input Function Output Ordered Pair 18 Add 5 23 (18, 23) A Subtract 1 A – 1 (A, A-1) X f f(x) ( x , f(x) ) Writing and using a function rule: The area of a square tile is a function of the length of a side of the square. Write a function rule for the area of a square. Evaluate the function for a square tile with side length 3.5 inches. Homework# ___ : Page 59 (5-7, 12-21, 23-31odd & 39)...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
